Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding is only four months away, but many details still remain a mystery. We know that the nuptials will take place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on May 19 and that the cake will reportedly be made from bananas, but the guest list, dress, and many other very important ingredients are still up in the air.
However, on Monday, one possible detail was revealed: Samantha Grant, the half-sister of Meghan Markle, said on a British talk show that their father, Tom Markle, will walk the actress and soon-to-be royal down the aisle.
“God forbid, unless the plane crashes…he’ll be there one way or another,” she told the hosts of The Wright Stuff. “Any rumor to the contrary is, my favorite new word is becoming, ‘Oh, rubbish.’ So he will be there.”
Grant’s comment comes less than two weeks after she criticized Prince Harry for a remark he made about Markle’s family. “I think we’ve got one of the biggest families that I know of, and every family is complex as well,” he told BBC Radio 4. “She’s done an absolutely amazing job; she’s getting in there, and it’s the family that I suppose she never had.”
In response, Grant fired off a series of tweets refuting Prince Harry’s statement and, tellingly, plugging her upcoming tell-all memoir, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. “Actually, she has a large family who were always there with her and for her,” she wrote. “Our household was very normal, and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. No one was estranged, she was just too busy. Read my book complete with facts and photos.”
Gwyneth Paltrow And Brad Falchuk Are Engaged
The cover of Goopshows a beaming Paltrow being embraced from behind by Falchuk. In another image from the cover shoot, captured by Steven Pan, Falchuk holds Paltrow close and kisses her on the cheek while she grins at the camera and positions her hand just so to show off her engagement ring, which looks to be a simple band set with a huge circular gemstone.
Inside the second issue of her namesake magazine, Paltrow opens up about her “conscious uncoupling” from Chris Martin and impending second marriage to Falchuk. “Personally, at midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be. I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy,” she writes about Falchuk. “For the first time, I feel like I’m in an adult relationship that is sometimes very uncomfortable—because he sort of demands a certain level of intimacy and communication that I haven’t been held to before. What came up in the first couple of years of our relationship was how incapable I was in this realm—how I feared intimacy and communication.”
Entertainment Tonight reported that they’ve actually been engaged for over a year—Paltrow and Falchuk confirmed the big news to Good Morning America on Monday. “We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship,” they said in a joint statement.
